Moulin Rouge: Mix Tape Monday

This is my first time joining in with I Want My Mummy’s blog hop, Mix Tape Monday. The theme this week is songs from the big screen. The first film that came to mind was Moulin Rouge. It is the only film soundtrack album that I have bought and for some reason the song that I played over and over again was the one played in the closing titles.



I am now sat pondering why this one appeals to me so much. I was about 15 years old when I first watched Moulin Rouge and fell in love with the film, the dance, the music, the costumes, the romance, everything about it. Though it was always this song I would listen to over and over, nothing like anything else I was listening to at the time. If I remember rightly Pink and Dido were the other albums that I had on replay.
So what is it about this song? I think it’s the power in it, it starts off teasing you and leads in to this huge powerful, magical story with a huge fancy finale.

  2. Cool song – I remember seeing Moulin Rouge for the first time and falling a bit more in love with Ewan MacGregor once I knew how well he could sing!
